Leonard Fournette re-signs

The Bucs have re-signed running back Leonard Fournette to a one-year contract worth up to $4M

Dynasty Analysis

The base deal is said to be $3.25M but can reach $4M via incentives. Now in his age-26 season, Fournette was a shocking cut by the Jaguars just prior to the start of the 2020 campaign but landed on his feet in Tampa Bay, ultimately securing his first championship ring. Looking out of gas and a step-slow on limited carries early in 2020, "Lombardi Lenny" turned it on in the post-season, rushing for 300 yards and three touchdowns and averaging 4.7 ypc. In that same stretch, he also reeled in 18 receptions for another 148 yards. It was a night and day performance from the regular season player and ultimately the Bucs and Fournette came to an agreement on the one-year deal which will allow him to build upon the momentum in 2021 and make his case for one final contract to end his career in 2022 as a free agent. Ronald Jones is still in the mix as a runner but doesn't factor significantly in the passing game, making Fournette the likely safer RB1 play in the offense. Fournette, DLF's RB26, is a risk-on but intriguing low-value acquisition for 2021 with the potential of an upside situation in 2022.
